Angoradb: A database for QTL research in Angora goats (Short communication)
AbstractBiological data repositories are widely applied to assist researchers in effectively storing and retrieving data. The recent developments in molecular biology intensified the need for well-designed biological databases, which can be queried without increasing the computational time. This study describes the design of a biological databank for the primary data collection phase, which involves collection and storing of genotypic and phenotypic information of a number of South African Angora goat herds, which will be utilised in a QTL study for mohair traits.
